A New EfMert to Enlist English Capital in
Miusslslppi River Transportatien. e
[St. Louis Republican.)l
The Republican is enabled to announce that I
a most important movement is fairly under t
ay to secure the assistance of foreign capi- -
in developing the full capacities of the e
iasiasippi river as a channel of cheap trans
tonto the sea. Mr. Charles P.Chou
one of the most prominent and wealthy
of the city, has made every arrange
-meat for a visit to Europe for the special
i of interesting capital there In the
llshment of new and improved steam
boats and barges on the Mississippi and d
tributaries and will sail from New York next
k. Mr. Chouteau will be joined on the
bth Mideby Mr. George H. Rea, president of c
te Mississippi Valley Transportation Com
p who will assist him in presenting and
exD g the merits of the scheme which
be o ered. Mr. Chouteau has been la
borlously occupied for some time past in pre
for this mission, and will go fully
:ime with all the facts and info)rmation
aesded to acquaint foreign capitalists with
te extraordinary opportunity for the profit
i investment of money which is now
~ by the completion of the jetties and
the revolution in the course of the grain trade
lrady fairly begun. He wisely resolved at
the start that the success of his undertaking
uldd only be secured by his personal visit to
Zrope, so that he has made no effort to in
ktooduoe his scheme by letter. As a means of
-resenting clearly and satisfactorily all of the
details of the situation, and as a sup-,
t to the real arguments which he will
make in personal interviews, Mr. Chouteau
~ýh prepared in pamphlet form an exhaustive
.1lew of the river transportation of the
-Wet as it now is and may be
come. The aim of this pamphlet is to
xibit as strikingly as possible the
deects in the boats and barges now in use
and the necessity of improvement in their
ruction to cheapen the cost of transpor
Wo and insure an increase of trade. Ie is
t.e bold advocate of radical revolution in our
£et water craft, and his pamphlet is at
.p complete exposition of the innumerable
- d2g enices of the present style of boats and
r and of the Immense trade which can
bilt up with the cheapening of freight
., which will come from the adoption of
l~movements remedying these deficienciee.
thina g but a plain statement of facts is re
e cto oonvince the foreign capitalists that
tipossibllties of this opportunity is not ex
ted, but these facts are presented with
pamphlet begins with a brief but com
orehe ive statement of the area and produc
~iaof the territory which is drained by the
Mississippi and its tributaries, accompanying
which is a colored "crop map," similar to
those published in the United States census
report of 1870. This shows the distribution
of the areas of greatest surplus production of
horn, wheat, tobacco, cotton and hay, and the
ultimate connection between them and the
iavigable watre of the West, especially in
regatrd to the rivers flowing into the Gulf of
M~edco The extent, character and peculiar
n.-'ygable features are all considered in de
-il, and then a full description is given of the
".: of vessels now employed on these wA
;;. Having fully desribed our present
_ter-craftt. Mr. Chouteau prtceeds to give a
Sl-fluls account of their defects, In which he
as it quite plain that the cost of transpor
~ia is now very greatly increased by imper
I i 'truction of the engines, and unsuita
i machiey for their propulsion.
& iitg fully exposed the defects of the
Stes tv.seels, Mr. Chouteau presents plans
;.dsdeled spcifications for an entirely new
Siron samboats and barges, which it
r H.ievy e can be operated with so much
more gafety and economy, that larger profits
U are now realized can be obtained at a
.:. loewer ftre iht rate. He urges that by
prn ci iron, jdicious design and careful
wIhi give the greatest strength

forty years, th average cost of repairs, in
clusive of painting, etc. during that time not
exceeding 2' per cent per annum. No in
uranlle wias noll be needed onuilt, the ulls, sae t will
be almost imposelble to sink or burn them,
and the iron bargeso willcn be so secure that the n
surance on it will be merely nominal, or
eve may be assivumed by the transportation
companies as it now is by railroads. More
thaupper this, these ron vessels will pass through
the water so much more easily than oodense
hulls as now built, that it Is safe to assume
that live Iron barge. can be towed with the
same power now required for four wooden
barges of like dimension and draft, equiva-r
lent to an increase of 40 per cent. Esti
mates are given of the cost of trip ca on the
upper and lower river with well built Iron
boats and barges, including every expense
excmake insuranc and wear and tear
which show that at four cents a bushel
a towboat and three barges loaded to
four feet depth on the down trip can clear
$ic3fi net profit each round trip, which It can
make in ten days, or eighteen trips a season,
while a towboat and five barge. loaded to
seven feet on the down trip to New Orleans
would earn $9597 net proflit each trip, carry
ing grain at 8'/o per bushel, taking twenty
days for the round trip and making twelve
trips every year. To make clear the brilliant
poesbillties of these low rates statistics are
given at length showing the present cost of
transportation to the seaboard by all the
These facts Mr. Chouteau will present to
the European capitalists personally as pre
viously stated, and his pamphlet is intended
principally as a means of presenting in con
venient form the statistics and other figures
which he will have occasion to refer to,
His main object is to show the great
opportunity offered to any company which
will replace our imperfect boats, barges
and engines with the more perfect inven
tions ii use elsewhere, and the designs
which he offers are more in the way
of suggestion than anything else. When
it is remembeted that Mr. Chouteau repre
sents one of the most wealthy corporations in
the West; that he will be accompanied by an
officer of another company already engaged
in the grain transportation business, and that
they are prepared to make such propositions
as will show that capital in this country is
willing to embark in the venture he advo
cates, it will be seen that the prospects of his
succeeding are most encouragin. He will go
to the foreign capitalists in a diferent way
from what they have hitherto been apprdach
ed, and there is no doubt that he will return

enterprise ever undertaken in the Mississippi
GATHEUIIIE POLITICAL CAPITAL.
Making the Interoler Department Clerks
Come Down with Money.
WASHINGToN, June 10.-The clerks in the
Interior Department received Invitations to
day from the Republican Congressional Com
mittee, to contribute specified amounts, de
termined by the amount of salary received,
for carrying on the next political campaign.
The importance of preventing the Democrats
from obtaining control of the next House Is
suggested. The committee stated that it has
good reason to enter upon its work with cour
age. This is different front the course pur
sued in the Postoffice Department, where
clerks were not asked to give any specflod
amount, or indeed subscribe at all unless they

WAs~aNGTON June 10--There was a lively
debate in the Senate to-day on the bill per
mitting West Virginia and North Carolina to
elect Congressmen in October when their
State elections are held. The bill had passed
the House and in the Senate it was amended
so as to allow the Legislature of New Hamp
shire, which meets this week, to elect a suc
cessor to Wadleigh, Whose term expires next
March. Under the constitution of that State
the Legislature, which should properly elect
a Senator, does not meet until June, 1879,
which will cause a vacant seat in the Senate
for three or four months. The Republicans
asked that the present Legislature might
elect the Senator, but the Democrats opposed,
so that they could have a chance to elect a
Democratic Senator, if by any possibility
they could get the next Legislature. The bill
passed by a vote of thirty-four to twenty

WAsHINGTON, June 10.-The Tilden people
are making a determined effort to get the
Kimmel bill out of the hands of the Judiciary
Committee. The action of that commitree in
delaying the report on the Maryland resolu
tions and the Kimmel bill is somewhat signifi
cant. Two weeks ago a majority of members
were ready to make an adverse report, and
supplement it with the declaration that the
President's title is irrefragible. To-day a
meeting to consider the report was held, but
the subject was again postponed until to-mor
row. A member of the committee said that
Gen. Butler favored delay, and that he had
said that the result of the present investiga
tion might be the presentation of articles of
impeachment against the President, and in
view of such a possibility it was better that
no consideration be made affecting the Presi
dent's title until the investigation shall have
been completed. Manton Marble has arrived
here to impress the Democrats with the idea
that the count was not regular; that the vote
was not counted by the two houses; that the
results should be overthrown. There is no
disguising the fact that there has been at
least a modification of the general sentiment
and feeling among the Democrats on 'his

WASHINGTON, June 10.-Mr. Cox, of New
York introduced a bill in the House to-day,
which was referred, providing for the im
provement of the navigation of the South
west Bass at the mouth of the Mississippi.
It authorizes James Knapp to enter upon the
work of improving its navigation by causing
3to be made a wide channel not less than
I twenty-seven feet in depth. He is allowed to
1 construct the necessary works at the mouth
of the river and must deepen the channel at
the rate of six feet a year across the bar out
Sside of the pass. Five years are allowed him
in which to complete the work, by which time
t if the work is done to the satisfaction of the
Secretary of War, on report of a board of
1 army engineers, he is to receive $5,000,000. A
failure to commence operations within one
year renders the contract void.
Wool growing, we are glad to learn, is
rapidly becoming a popular enterprise in our
s parish. There are some planters in More
house who were able to send to market this
year as much as 600 pounds of wool, for which
a good price was received. This industry.
we believe, will continue to increase until
Morehouse becomes really a great sheep
n country. Considering the very small ex
pense attending the raising of wool, and the
ease also with which it is done we are at a
loss to know why every farmer In the coun
try has not long since engaged in this money
jt making. How would it work to have a few
pounds of wool to sell after your cotton
money is all gone and a little cash needed ?
